10 Steps to Healthy Hair Washing
Posted on January 12 2018
Follow these instructions and you’ll end up with less hair damage and healthier, better-looking hair:
2. If you’re in a bath tub, lean your head forward as you rinse the shampoo out with warm water.3. If you’re not using a shampoo that contains conditioner, put a separate conditioner in your hands and apply it to the scalp first before working it into the hair. Leave it on for at least a couple of minutes and then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
4. Shampoos combined with conditioners can be very effective for most men with short hair and for hair that’s not damaged.
5. Towel-dry your hair gently by patting it; don’t rub your scalp and hair briskly with the towel and don’t blow-dry your hair when soaking wet.
6. Comb or brush your wet hair gently. If you use a conditioner properly, the tangles should be relatively easy to take out with a wide-toothed plastic comb or brush.
7. If you use a mousse, gel, or setting agent, it’s best applied after you pat-dry your hair, when the hair is still damp.
8. So-called wet gels give the hair a glossy appearance.
9. If you blow-dry your hair, don’t do so when the hair is soaking wet.
10. If you use a blow-dryer, be sure to keep it moving constantly so that the heat isn’t concentrated in one area of your hair. It’s always best to use the lowest heat and the lowest speed you can get away with because high heat causes hair damage. Also, damage generally occurs at the end of the blow-drying cycle, so always turn off the drier before your hair is completely dry.
